The Department of Defense announced the winners of its 2014 CIO awards on Dec. 4, celebrating the honor’s 14th anniversary in a ceremony at the Pentagon. Four teams and four individuals were honored for achievements in information resource management, IT and cybersecurity over the past year.

The NSA’s Heartbleed Team received the top group honor for preventing the exploitation of that widespread security vulnerability in the department’s “global network of more than eight million computing devices.”

Martin P. Doebel -- Strategic System Technical Manager/Chief National and Nuclear C4 Division, United States Strategic Command, Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska -- won first place for individuals based on his work to address gaps in National and Nuclear Command, Control, Communications and Computer systems. 

Terry Halvorsen, DOD's acting CIO, spoke briefly at the event, saying that the relationship of acquisition, technology and logistics in government “is vital to driving innovation across the department, as exemplified by the achievements recognized here today.” The eight award winners were selected from more than 100 nominations spanning both civilian and military employees.

The complete list of teams and individuals honored at the event can be found in the DOD’s official release.
